Okay folks, it is not too late to look great this summer. For those of you who know me, know that I love to eat and have a great time. However, I also exercise to stay in shape. So I am always being asked by friends, clients and associates for tips on getting in shape. Anyway, I have some great news for you today. What is the great news you ask?

My mom makes the most amazing Christmas cake in the world; it’s been a tradition in our family for as long as I can remember. First, she mixes up a light, fluffy, vanilla cake mix, pours it into the pans and then pops it in the oven. After it’s been baked, she stacks the cake in two layers with whipped cream spread generously between each layer. She then pours on red and green Jell-O, which gets soaked up inside the cake. Next, whipped cream is smothered all the way around for frosting. And finally, she garnishes it with red and green sprinkles. A few red and green-striped candy canes are stuck in the top as the finishing touch, and off it goes to the refrigerator so it can be served chilled later.
